The purpose of this study is to analyze the indoor temperature distribution of a room controlled by a personal and portable cooler. As an energy saving strategy, the personal air-conditioning or task conditioning system was developed and installed in office buildings in the 90 s. Many research results regarding the personal air-conditioning (PAC) system were focused on thermal comfort, localized ventilation efficiency and energy savings. However, the conventional PACs were only developed for

The measurement was performed in a bedroom in an apartment house. The results showed that indoor temperature was controlled at about 24℃ around the human body. However, the ambient zone up to 1.5 m away from the the human body stayed at about 27.5℃.
